-Arrowhead Pride is a beat blog, and part of the larger network of SB Nation (sports blogs Inc.) It is a blog about the Kansas City Chiefs primarily, however it does also allow for other football related topics from time-to-time. This site fits under the category of beat blog, because the site has several editors along with the two main writers and managers. The website encourages comments from their readers. Sometimes, a story will be posted as part of a story and people can come along on the first post and help influence or encourage the direction of the upcoming parts. What I gathered from the text was that beat-blogging covers a certain topic and encourages frequent feedback.
-In addition student journalists could learn that this could be the future of online publishing of content. People are going to expect to be able to leave a comment, tweet, or question about the article they are reading. This site does what most do not. If you are serious about a topic and write a full length article they may edit and use your story. Over time a person with quality posts could become a contributor. This shows that there are new opportunities forming every day.
-Best thing the site does is allow for comments to not only be submitted but viewed by anyone even if you do not register with the site. Something it does not do excellent would be when some people post it is under a nickname instead of first name last name which could lessen credibility.
-The game is changing because people are getting the chance to publish content with people who have similar interests.
-Personally, I like the roster, schedule, and Chiefs fans/players twitter feed on the left side. This makes the site more than just articles you can hear from people and actual players.
